''John Brown was a Civil War abolitionist born on May 9, 1800. John Brown didn’t believe in being peaceful when ending slavery. Brown did a raid on Harpers Ferry with a group of 21 men. John Brown’s raid was at first successful, but Brown planned for the local slaves to revolt and gain their freedom when they captured the arsenal. The slaves didn’t revolt and help Brown though, and Brown and his men were captured and killed.''

''John Brown lived a short life before he died, but although he died from using violence that lots of people didn’t believe was right to use he was still remembered by lots of people including other abolitionists. John Brown had faced a lot of financial problems throughout his life, and he had died trying to save slaves from their owners. John Brown is still remembered for what he did or what he tried to do. Although some people didn’t agree with him using violence he is still known.''
